He used to be fluffy. The feathers under him is hard now. He is a chocolate runner duck. I can see his pinkish purpalish skin now.

The feathers are all beggining to feel like plastic

Examine her closely for mites, be sure he is getting enough protein and a balanced feed and give some him vitamins.
